Tove Lo – I’m Coming

If you are unfamiliar with the Swedish-sung music scene, this song is a stomping cover of a modern classic by Veronica Maggio called ‘Jag Kommer’.

Veronica Maggio – Jag kastar bort mitt liv

Track of the week. I know it’s entirely in Swedish but wait until the beat drops because it’s pure bliss – this is Sweden’s finest and a reminder to never underestimate this nation’s natural instinct to create some of the world’s best pop.

Watch: Veronica Maggio – Vi mot världen

I give Veronica Maggio so much kudos for sticking to singing in Swedish all these years. Even when you can’t understand the lyrics it’s still so enjoyable listening to this gem of a singer.

veronica maggio handen album

Veronica Maggio goes all Daft Punk with this remix from Wagner (who happens to be one half of Danish pop due ColorKaleido).

For those of you who aren’t familiar with Maggio, she’s a Swedish pop institution who’s interestingly never released an album in English.

The most listened to track in Sweden last year

It’s just gone 7 times platinum. Good song, maybe an English version would make a lot of people happy?
